Welcome to the School of Business and Economics at Sonoma State University!
As we celebrate the start of another fall semester and a new academic year at the School of Business and Economics (SBE) here at Sonoma State University, I wanted to take a moment to welcome those of you who are first-time SBE students and also to welcome back all of our returning students. The campus is fully open and ready for you.
At the SBE our mission is to help you develop into future leaders who want to change the world for the better, with a strong commitment to sustainability and inclusive excellence. Over the next few weeks, I hope that you have the opportunity to explore the campus, Seawolf Living gives you a good perspective of the life of a student on campus, and we hope you can participate in some of the upcoming events designed to help you navigate the college and make the most out of your time here.
Need help with academic advising? Please visit your academic advisors and career counselors, talk to your professors, join a student organization and attend an event.
I look forward to hearing from you over the next year and seeing your success stories in action.
Sincerely and warm regards,
Dr. JF (Jean-Francois) Coget, Ph.D.
WHY STUDY BUSINESS?
Your passion may be making videos, designing buildings, or playing basketball. Whatever your skill set and interests, there's a business side to the equation. Think about it: Business is part of the language we use when we talk about the entertainment industry, project financing, and sports marketing. Everything has a "business" side to it, because every industry needs accountants, marketers, managers, financial analysts, and technology support staff — in other words, people who have studied business.
